Woman Struck and Killed by Stolen SUV in Brooklyn: NYPD

A woman pedestrian was killed and a companion was injured Sunday when they were hit by a stolen SUV that had spun off a collision with another vehicle in Brooklyn, police said. 

Two suspects fled from the stolen SUV after it slammed into a 51-year-old Chooi Tan and a 57-year-old man walking near the intersection of East 94th Street and Avenue K in Canarsie, investigators said.

The driver of the stolen SUV lost control of the vehicle after it had crashed into another car at about 12:50 p.m., police said.

Tan, a Brooklyn resident, was taken to Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center where she died from a head injury, police said. The other pedestrian who was hit sustained injuries that police said weren't serious.

The driver of the other car was also taken to the hospital.

The SUV was reported stolen on Friday.

No arrests have been made.

Police released surveillance video and stills of the suspects Monday.
